  • Frazil ice formation in ice shelf water plume 

    Smedsrud, Lars Henrik; Jenkins, Adrian (American Geophysical Union, 2004-03-17)
    We present a model for the growth of frazil ice crystals and their accumulation as marine ice at the base of Antarctic ice shelves. The model describes the flow of buoyant water upward along the ice shelf base and includes ...
